An inside look at the Detroit Pistons and the NBA.

Robert Horry deserves to be suspended not only one
game for his forearm shiver to Steve Nash Monday night
but the rest of the Suns-Spurs series. There's no need
for that kind of nonsense.
In case you missed it, the Spurs were down 3 in the
late going and needed to foul to stop the clock.
Rather than simply grabbing or bumping Nash, Horry
sent the Suns point guard sprawling.
It would be a joke if Amare Stoudemire or Boris Diaw
were suspended for leaving the bench. First of all,
the play occured right near the Suns bench. It's not
as if they wandered across the court to join in the
scrum. And the Suns coaches held them back from
getting involved.
Do you think Rasheed and Dice would have stood up with
their hands folded on the bench if Ty Thomas had done
the same to Chauncey? You've got to give the guys some
leeway in the "no leaving the bench" for a natural
reaction to seeing a teammate, especially a team
leader, get floored by a dirty play.
